Hello, fam! Living in Kuala Lumpur, Bukit Bintang should be a very familiar place to all of us. After all, the location houses many promising shopping malls, street food and al fresco bars that are perfect for the weekend. How many times have you been there? Well, we bet that you have never seen it like this before. This Sarawakian Photographer Turns Bukit Bintang Into Blade Runner Scenes.
Bukit Bintang with cyberpunk vibes is extraordinary
Kuala Lumpur based photographer, Chris Fowler, has added Blade Runner vibes into his photography. To say the least, the results were amazing. Surely, it is something that we have never stumbled upon before. Chris, a self-taught photographer, uses Sony A7iii with the Laowa 15mm f2 FE Zero-D lens to capture these moments. To edit, he uses Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop.
His Facebook album, titled “Cyberpunk Bukit Bintang“, has garnered more than 400 positive comments and 600 shares. Chris mentioned that he has always wanted to create this kind of style as he has always felt that Bukti Bintang has a Blade Runner aesthetic with large LED panels, a mixture of street food, people crossing the street, and occasional rain that creates a nice glow from the reflection of lights from the streets itself.
Chris has been taking photographs for more than ten years now. Currently, his inspirations are Jennifer Bin, Bobby Vu, and Kei Kinoshita. You will be happy to know that he isn’t stopping anytime soon as he already has plans for the next series for this project. Honestly, we cannot wait to see it! You can check out some of this other works on his Instagram, or Behance.
